Danbury Municipal Airport
The pilot of a small, single-engine plane escaped serious injury after landing the aircraft short of its intended runway in Danbury on Thursday.
The agency announced the decision Friday, a month after it released a preliminary list of facilities that could be closed.
A group of U.S. Senators is working to keep the airport control towers from closing due to a lack of funding under sequester cuts.
The very idea of closing the control towers is insane, according to U.S. Sen. Chris Murphy.
A small airplane clipped a house and crashed in Danbury on Sunday evening, killing the pilot, officials said. A 91-year-old woman was luckily unhurt when the plane crashed in her yard just outsider her kitchen.
